Trendsetter on the design scene, Ronique Jones Gibson

Ronique Gibson, Associate AIA, LEED A.P., is a home design/lifestyle expert whose point of view is enhanced by the fact she is a trained architect—stretching back 17 years, her career in the design field brings her a natural astuteness at identifying spatial acuity, aesthetic elegance and overall graciousness when she is crafting coverage for new media.

She launched Stagetecture.com in 2009, quickly establishing herself as a voice on the design scene by helping homeowners meet myriad challenges. Through the informative blog, she showcases elements that bring pizzazz to interiors, helps the frazzled gain a handle on organization, shares fun do-it-yourself projects, and acts as a resource for top-shelf solutions that make everyday life brighter and more aesthetically pleasing.

Requests to contribute to a variety of high-profile home-design, architecture and lifestyle blogs and publications quickly followed. Gibson has represented the popular portal Freshome.com at the World Market Las Vegas, and was tapped by Brizo to participate in Blogger19—a select group of social media savants who attend New York Fashion Week to see Jason Wu launch his couture collections each year. Within five years of founding Stagetecture, she has gone global, traveling to Valencia and Madrid as a member of a select group of leading architectural journalists with the Tile of Spain organization.

Gibson also serves as the ‘Blogger Expert’ moderator for the Interior Designer Community on Google+. In this capacity, she offers new media tips and presents coverage of her travels to design events. She is known for enhancing the brands she has special access to, both for their existing audience and potential customers, through video, social media and blogging. One such event, an invitation to participate in a video produced by SubZero/Wolf that presented the ideas of influential design bloggers, illustrates her worldwide influence that has enabled her to form beneficial alliances with major brands. We at Global Lighting were over the moon when she agreed to direct a bit of her influence our way and choose one of our products as her tastemaker pick. She took it outdoors and tapped the Belt by B.lux.
